Refugees & Asylum

“Refugees didn’t just escape a place. They had to escape a thousand memories until they’d put enough time and distance between them and their misery to wake to a better day.”

— Nadia Hashimi

When in Canada, and in some situations, you may be eligible to claim refugee protection. The later is offered to some people in Canada who fear or who would be in danger if they had to leave. Some dangers they may face include:

  • torture
  • a risk to their life, or
  • a risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment.

If you want to know if you are eligible or if you have any other question, please let us know more.

You can also read more about the subject on the Government of Canada website here.
